As it turns out, the relationship between the former Saturday Night Live player and “The Book of Right-On” singer took a little work on Samberg’s end to get going.
Before Samberg had even met Newsom, he totally had a crush on her.
The crush was super cute; the comedian would often show up at her shows to hang out and listen.
Despite the couple’s apparent differences in musical styles—it’s hard to even get tracks like “I’m on a Boat” into the same conversation as “Peach, Plum, Pear”—he was eventually able to meet her due to getting acquainted through mutual friends.
